The above 2 quotes remind me of a positive side of being blind, we do not see a person’s skin color, or what place of worship they enter or even how they dress. A person that is blind takes people as they are, it doesn’t really matter if you are homeless or a millionaire. There are so many times especially with the way the world is today I wish everyone could be blind so the things that people think matter, they will “see” that those things really do not matter. It is true that people can lie and I have been taken by those closest to me, but I choose to be optimist. While I am a little more hardened, I still believe there is good in all people.
